New student orientation for first-year students consists of two parts:

1. Attend a STORM Day for advisement and registration for Fall semester classes.

2. Attend Freshman Orientation the week prior to Fall semester classes beginning.

STORM (Seizing the Opportunity to Register & More) Day provides students an introduction to the academic life and expectations of a first-year student at GSW.  At STORM Day, you will meet with faculty in your academic college, register for classes, set up your online platforms, and make your student ID.

Freshman Orientation is your first step in transitioning into your role as a student at GSW.  During orientation, you will learn about campus resources that are available to help you succeed, meet faculty in your academic college, familiarize yourself with campus, meet student leaders, and be officially welcomed into the University family during Freshman Convocation.  Freshman convocation is an opportunity for you to reflect on your educational endeavour and the commitment of GSW to support you in the pursuit of your goals.

STORM Day checklist:

  • Arrive promptly for check-in beginning at 9:00am.
  • Students must attend the entire day to complete the program and be registered for courses.
  • Dual Enrollment college transcripts need to be sent to GSW as soon as courses are complete.
  • The required $20 per family member/guest fee is payable with cash, check, or credit card at check-in. 
  • Please wear comfortable clothing/shoes because you will be walking around campus.
  • Complete the FAFSA so the Office of Student Financial Aid may prepare your award letter.
  • Submit your photo for your new student ID at this link:
